Hello

Did you ever find a place in Saudi that does Gamma Knife Surgery?

Thank you

Hi, no i coulnt able to find in saudia.  My father got gamma knife treatment from pakistan.

Thanks for your reply.  I had mine done in London, but someone asked me about it and I see on the internet that they have it in Saudi, but then it also says it is done in Dubai, and that's not true either.

Thank you.

I would like to know ur post operative situation. My father underwent Gamma knife treatment in July 2012 in Karachi (there is only one hospital in Pakistan specialized and accredited in Gamma knife). He did his first MRI in Feb 2013 and it showed that the benign tumor is decaying, however a complete diffusion may take 2-3 years to complete.

Hi -Mine was an acoustic neuroma also.  I had the gamma knife surgery done in 2005.  After 1 year, 2006, i had an MRI and there was no change.  After the second year, 2007, there was a decrease in size, but the doctor in London said the scans were not good enough to tell how much of a decrease.  He told me to have an MRI done next after 3 years.  2010 my MRI showed that the tumour had reduced to be 1/3 the size it was at the start. I was supposed to have an MRI the next year and I didn't, as my mom was very ill and i was traveling back and forth for 6 months.  I haven't had another MRI.  I guess I should, but the longer I wait, the more hesitant I am to do it.  The MRI makes me very nervous, and the older I get:), the more claustrophobic I get.  I should have one.  I will see.

Does u still feel like vertigo and sounds like bells ringing in the ears ?

It took 5 years for my father to diagnose that its Acoustic Neuroma/ Meniers, till that time he already lost hearing of one of his ears. Though he is improving now but he is still feeling an imbalance while walking and has an adversely reduced hearing.

Hello Brother,

Hope you doing well there.
I was going through posts, As you mentioned you got Gamma Rays from Karachi, Can I ask you which hospital was that? how was treatment there?
Please do let me know as I'm looking for my mother. So keen to get it done in Pak, not much keen to go for surgery.

Looking forward reply from your side,

Thanks.
